Professor Susan Bloom's 11th Annual Review of Best Books

One of my great, great pleasures of December's at Simmons College is sitting and relaxing with Susan. High atop the new Lefavour Building, with the cold damp outside, I can sip cider and nibble on homemade cookies whilst listening to my dear friend speak about the Best Children's and Young Adult Books of this last year.

The theme was "Eating Up The World" - a celebration of life, and eating literally and figuratively - accompanied by gastronomically visualized cookies in the shapes of mouths. Piles of picture books and a few novels end up all over the floor at Susan's feet, where she gently placed them, like children may do as they release their books to gravity next to their beds as they as well fall off to sleep.
